Ingredients

  • 8 8 inch crepes like our Classic French Crepes

  • 1/2 cup feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 egg lightly beaten

  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cook spinach over medium heat until slightly limp. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your pan.
  • Drain the spinach and press out any excess liquid, then chop finely and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cheeses, egg, nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  • Stir spinach into cheese mixture to combine.

  • Place in a greased 9 x 13 inch baking dish.
  • Brush the tops of the crepes with olive oil and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for about 10 minutes, or until starting to brown and heated through.

Notes
